Many investigation results show that social context plays a great role in determing the ways which people use for adjustment to their life events. In our study we tried to explore the distinctions in personal variable actions to adjust with death of dear person, relatives or their own health problems, problems with work, family or interpersonal relations. For the aim of the study 70-item questionnaire containing behavioral, emotional, motivation-and-meaning, defense, self-control, optimism, and social interaction variables were used for assessment the most negative life event the participants had experienced. The results show that only behavioral, emotional and defense variables are sensitive to changing social context.
